Hi, I’m trying to make a backup of my version of C&C: Generals and having some issues, or not.
I’ve done the sheep test, my CD Writer passed the test for a 2 sheep writer. My CD Writer shows as LITE-ON LTR-0841. My CD Rom drive comes up as HL-DT-ST CD-ROM. I’m also using Windows XP Professional, with the latest service pack updates.
I initially tried using CloneCD 5 to copy, but it doesn’t seem to make an image file for it, just comes up with a bunch of read errors. I picked Protected PC Game, and I also tried just PC Game (I think that was what the option was called, I have since uninstalled Clone CD.) I tried just copying straight to a CD-R and that had some sort of copy error at about 5%.
I then tried using Alcohol 120%, and I keep getting read errors (LOTS of them) while it’s making the image file. Now, read error to me seems like a not good thing, but it seems like it’s still making the image file, I’ll be it at an ungodly slow pace. It takes about 15 minutes to get to 1%. This doesn’t seem right to me, perhaps I’m just impatient and used to a copy only taking about 10 minutes to make.
I could use all the help I can get as I’m going away in a week and was hoping to leave the originals at home so they don’t get lost, scratched or whatever else might possibly happen to them.
Thanks in advance.
